O descanso, meaning literally "The rest"
while searching to represent his pursue of the harmony in the human mind and in himself, also between human relations, intuition led the painting and to a surprisingly ironic result: it is possible to see in both figures a sense of harmony and a sense of distress or distrust.
One eye gently closed while the other blank open causes the sleep face to fade, the lower figure seems tranquil with eyes closed getting a gentle touch from the soft hand on the top, contrasting to the rigid expression and statue-like pose.
The steel frame (not visible) was worked and the bottom part was done by cutting the paper and rearranging it.
